Is a Fitting First?
It depends on your residual limb. If you have recently experienced limb loss, the swelling of your residual limb will need to time to decrease and heal. A fitting involves measuring your limb and creating a cast as a mold for your new device. For the most accurate measurements, it is important to wait until the swelling has gone down.
At BioTech Limb and Brace, we offer expedited fittings. With advanced technology, we are able to get you in and out of the office in no time. These expedited fittings for patients coming from out of town are key! We want to make sure that we are efficient and timely.
During the fitting, we will use image capture interface model development and utilize diagnostic socket fitting and alignment to help you get the perfect fit. Then, we deliver your finished device, orthosis or prosthesis with care.
